ABSTRACT:
Music exhibitis a multitude of different kinds of structures. Some of these structures reflect acoustical, biological, cognitive, perceptual, historical, idiomatic, economic, formal, religious, social, cultural, and other factors. Much music scholarship involves describing and interpreting music. However, this presentation offers a defense of the view that the principal goal of music scholarship is to *explain* music -- in the sense of identifying plausible causes, motivations, or influences. Several illustrative examples are provided.
